WendyWendy Williams-Hunter and her husband and manager Kevin Hunter have already found the formula for successful daytime TV, and now the power duo is looking to conquer the reality TV world.

Wendy and Kevin recently launched their own reality production company called Wendy Williams Prods.

“This is a dream come true,” said the talk show diva. “Kevin and I have been kicking around so many ideas and are excited to be able to now bring them to life with our own production company. As anyone who watches my show knows, I am a huge fan of all reality and game shows, and know a thing or two about talk.”

According to Variety, WWP is set to develop and produce unscripted content, including reality programming, game shows and talk shows for cable and broadcast.

The Hunters hired Lisa Knapp, the former head of reality development for 44 Blue, as senior VP of development. Her credits include ABC’s The Bachelorette and A&E’s Gene Simmons Family Jewels.

“Lisa has spent a career creating and producing the kind of television shows I love, and we are thrilled to have her guide our development efforts. We don’t plan on wasting much time, so stay tuned for some must-see programming ahead,” Wendy said.

What do you expect from the Wendy Williams brand of reality TV?

    This is a great move for her. I started watching her talk show because she had reality show stars that I wasn’t seeing interviewed on any other programs. Plus, I remembered her specials from Vh1 and she was hilarious.

    Good luck, Wendy! How you doin’?

    It makes perfect business sense, since she IS the gossip queen.

    Unfortunately, money talks and trash tv for some reason equals ratings.

    if you ask me, if you’ve seen one reality TV show, you’ve had enough for the rest of your lives.
